    • Not everyone will like this portrait of George Washington as a tortured, insecure, and oh, not-overly-brilliant military leader; but I loved it because for all its characterization of the man as a flawed individual, it also portrayed him as someone of such determination and courage and sheer doggedness in the face of overwhelming odds that you come away in awe. What Fast seems to say is that it isn't brilliance -- Benedict Arnold was brilliant. It isn't intelligence -- Alexander Hamilton was pee [...]


    • This had been on my shelf for quite some time. I didn't pick it up because I expected it to be boring. It is a fiction book about George Washington at the beginning of the revolutionary war. I know how that story ends. There really aren't many surprises in what George was doing in this time frame. But. Howard Fast is an excellent writer. And of course there are many small and large bits of history I didn't know. For example I didn't know how few men Washington had with him when he crossed the De [...]


    • این کتاب با نام "شکست ناپذیر" توسط حسن مرندی به فارسی برگردانده شده و در سال 1355 توسط انتشارات نگاه منتشر شده است. خواندن اثار هوارد فاست کمک می کند تا تاریخ آمریکا را به گونه ای دیگر، از درون آینه ی ادبیات بشناسیم. اگرچه نه به آن دقت و جزئیات که تاریخ یک قرن فرانسه را می شود از طری [...]


    • Now I need to find some history books of the New York/ New Jersey campaign, and about Washington. While I found this interesting, the troop movements were a little hard to follow sometimes. Also, the overwhelming moodiness of Washington seemed over the top, maybe that is realistic though, at this point I don't know.


    • Howard fast was a prolific writer. He was also a communist and blacklisted in the 50's. He wrote a book, Spartacus. While in prison for refusing to give names to a congressional committee concerning who had contributed to a fund to help the republican cause in Spain (one of them was Eleanor Roosevelt).The unvanquished was written in 1942, historical fiction of the darkest days of the Revolution in 1776 and 1777 when Washington lost a series of battles in Brooklyn, White Plains , and the fall of [...]


    • Fast is prolific and this is an easily written and easily read book. It's a rather shocking portrayal of our rather boring founding father. He portrays Washington as a dark and mysterious fox hunter. He took what I thought were interesting liberties with the story of the fire in NYC as well as the characterizations of some of the generals. The story of the NY campaign is fascinating though.
